When news broke that the Rangers were in discussions to bring former Winnipeg Jets goaltender Ondrej Pavelec, it appeared that Jeff Gorton had found Benoit Allaire’s newest reclamation project. With the official start of free agency three hours away, news has already broke that Pavelec and the Rangers will agree to a contract:

Since the deal can’t officially be announced until 12:00 PM EDT, the terms of the contract are unlikely to be announced prior to then. However, it’s hard to imagine the deal being more than a one year deal for modest money due to the rough season Pavelec endured last year.

We’ll update this post as details come out. Thoughts on the Rangers’ newest backup goalie?
